About Natalie

We have been coming to Maui for over 15 years, and have always been attracted to Kaanapali, especially this location. We feel a sense of serenity every time we visit Maui and have been blessed to enjoy Honua Kai and allow others to enjoy our magical place.

Natalie purchased this condo in 2013

Why Natalie chose Maui

Honua Kai is located in one of our most favorite spots in Hawaii. Our studio offers a great location in the primary building, on the 3rd floor, with serene views of the grounds, pool, beach, ocean and Lanai. We are meticulous about our home, and our guests will not be disappointed with the quality, appointments and service!

What makes this condo unique

Enjoy a serene vacation at Maui's newest most luxurious resort... Honua Kai: 'Honua' means planet earth or stable ground; 'Kai' is the South Pacific Ocean as seen from the shores of Kaanapali disappearing beyond the horizon, past Molokai and Lanai, and into what ancient Hawaiians called the 'Great Sea of Eternity. The sea, sand and gentle warm breezes welcome you, and the Aloha spirit abounds you.

Honua Kai has all the amenities of a new 5-star hotel combined with the comfort of a private residence. no wonder HONUA KAI RESORT & SPA has become the hottest place for travelers. The 38 acres of lush, landscaped grounds containing both tranquil areas and also an expansive aquatic playground is rated as one of the top beachfront luxury resorts in Maui.

From the moment you arrive, there is a seamless indoor outdoor living, as seen in the lobby area that opens up to the beautiful lush landscaping and stunning views.

Honua Kai caters to so many with the many amenities: an infinity-edge pool with cabanas, aqua loungers, pool side beverage and food service, hot tubs, swim-under waterfalls, ‘lazy river’, child’s pool area with sand bottom and water slide, activity center with rentals, day and night child care (ages 3+), 10 outdoor Viking gas grills areas and on site gourmet market and Duke's restaurant.

We fell in love with this place because of the location, views, serenity, and amenities. We love the studio as it offers a cozy yet roomy space. We love the view from the sitting area and Lanai -- resort, tiki torches, pool, ocean, sunsets, lanai and the palm trees swaying in the breeze.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jerry and I just arrived home from Hawaii on Wednesday. After Maui we island hopped to the big island and Kauai.

Our accommodations on both islands couldn't compare with your condo.

We were 100% satisfied from start to finish. Rick met us and showed us around and was good enough to come right away the next morning to fix the safe which we had messed up. The location was perfect and we loved the view from the lanai. The unit was beautiful, well maintained and very clean.

It was all the little things that we really appreciated, the professional hairdryer, a big bonus. The toiletries, a fully equipped kitchen, nice bed linens, comfortable bed and good mattress cover, which wasn't noticed until we stripped the bed when leaving.

It was great having grocery bags, beach towels, chairs and boogey boards.

Our daughter and family were in another unit on the ground floor with our 2 very young(11 months and 3 years) grand daughters. The location was so perfect that we literally didn't have to leave the grounds unless we really wanted to, beach in the morning, pool in the afternoon and Dukes right on the grounds.

We were really sad to leave and are hoping to return possibly next year.

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at HonuaKai. The condo is situated perfectly within the resort in the first tower and within a minutes walk to everything - the little market with coffee, groceries and gelato; Duke's restaurant and the pool and beach! The condo was perfect for a couple and had everything you need. The kitchen well equipped and the washer/dryer worked like a dream. This place all the amenities of a large resort but all the comforts of home - I don't know why you'd stay anywhere else! The location of the resort was perfect if you have a lot planned in Lahaina, its only about a 10 minute drive to everything! If you need groceries and restaurants, everything is within 4 mies of the resort! We did drive down to Makena one of the days and even that was only a little over an hour. If you are looking for a very nice place to stay but don't want to waste all your money on a hotel chain that charges $500+ a night, look no further! Your money is much better spent on the tours on maui than on that. This resort delivers everything those hotels deliver but with more privacy and more comfort.. and space! When we return, wouldn't stay anywhere else!! Thanks for the amazing place to stay!

Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

Would definitely recommend this unit to others. It was clean and tidy when we arrived, is well maintained and is as described in the listing. The condo was stocked with a lot of great items that we have had to purchase or didn't have with other rentals so it was nice to see Candice and Natalie had taken care of those things. It was the perfect size for two of us and it was nice to sit out on the lanai every night and have dinner. Similar to other reviews, I would say that the resort itself is very family oriented and because the unit does overlook the main common area outside it can get a little noisy. There is a quiet pool on the property but it was usually full. For those looking for a romantic or relaxing stay, this may not be for you. However, If you are easy going and not planning on spending a ton of time at the resort then it's really not an issue.

Immaculate unit with incredible views. We plan on returning to this amazing property.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property shortly after finalizing all of our wedding plans as we decided Maui would be the ideal place to have our honeymoon. From the first message to the final booking and any questions during our stay, Natalie was absolutely amazing to deal with. We even spoke to Natalie on the phone for almost an hour prior to booking her unit as we had never used this site before and she made us feel at ease.

When we arrived at Honua Kai we were greeted by one of her representatives who brought us up to the unit. The photos on here are all beautiful, but the unit is even more impressive in person.

My partner and I were so impressed with this unit and the amenities that the resort has to offer that we plan on coming back in the future and have recommended this rental close friends and family.

Thank you Natalie for helping make our honeymoon as perfect as our wedding. Staying at your unit exceeded all of our expectations and we can't wait to come back.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

My parents and daughter and fiancé were staying at the Westin. We have stayed there a few times ourselves. We decided to make it a last minute family vacation. The Westin Villas are kinda hard to beat but couldn't get in. Started looking for something close to them. We were lucky to find such a wonderful place. I was so happy we decided to stay here. This was just as nice and comfortable. It has everything you need. Very well stocked with towels and linens and paper goods. Great Kitchen. Loved the boogie boards and the soft cooler sure came in handy. I was worried about the bed but was a Heavenly Bed and was SO comfortable. Hope we can come back and will definitely try to stay here again. Thanks for having us!

This condo is wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Natalie's condo in Maui was great. It had everything we needed for a very enjoyable week in paradise. It was in a perfect location with a view of the property and ocean. We especially enjoyed the balcony where we had coffee every morning.

The appliances were very nice. It was great having a washer and dryer at our fingertips.

We would definitely recommend this unit for a couple.
